Welcome to this week's Just Us Girls Challenge. I am the host and couldn't resist this fabulous photo as our inspiration picture to work with this week.
Had to use polka dots as per the sheets - such a hardship for me... not, LOL - and embossed chevrons on the white background panel as per the ones on the wall. My Favorite Things Pretty Posies and Leaf Filled Flourish dies for the flower element on the bedspread, and this wonderful sentiment from Verve's Fabulous You.
I'm going to keep this card in my stash to give to my daughter when I feel she needs to be reminded of how truly beautiful she is, both inside and out. High school can be brutal on a girl's self esteem, especially when you are swimming against the stream, and I'm always looking for ways to affirm her and encourage her to be who she is with a vengeance rather than feel she has to conform to what the world deems is beautiful, popular, trendy etc.
The rest of the JUGS team along with our June Guest Designer, Shirley-Bee, have some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so head on over to the Just Us Girls blog and check out what they've created. Simply create a card using the sketch and link it up to the JUGS blog for a chance to be chosen as the Chic of the Week. Remember, if you are chosen as Chic of the Week, you could be invited to be a Guest Designer.
Look forward to seeing what you create!
